The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) are dedicated to developing character, citizenship, and personal fitness among youth. The Virginia Headwaters BSA Council is committed to upholding the mission of the greater national BSA organization while providing unique opportunities to its members such as access to the Shenandoah National Park. Their representative rightfully stated: “The beauty of scouting is that wherever you go, you will have a home.”

Before working with Jitasa, BSA Virginia Headwaters Council considered hiring an internal accountant to manage their finances. However, the process of finding the right candidate, training them in nonprofit-specific accounting processes, and familiarizing them with BSA-particular needs was daunting, to say the least. It’s also an expensive process with no guarantee of success. That’s why they turned to Jitasa instead.

Jitasa’s team already had experience working with other BSA councils. Their team also only works with nonprofits, meaning the BSA Virginia Headwaters Council didn’t need to worry about training their accounting representative when they decided to work with Jitasa. Jitasa’s team was able to quickly understand the needs of the council and get to work with their immediate challenges such as a bank and endowment transfer.

Because Jitasa’s team got up to date with the BSA Virginia Headwaters Council’s books so quickly, their team was able to save time and money that would otherwise have been spent on the recruitment and training process for an internal accountant. Not only that, but they were able to save funds that would’ve been dedicated to salary and benefits because they chose an outsourcing model, all while not compromising on accuracy or quality.
